    **** Citizen Bullhead 8110 ****

    Well I was after one for some time and the other week I manage to snag one at a fair price now am not so sure.

    As when asked about how old it was I said early 1970's but now I had not thought much about it I did not get a bad vibe or anything when looking at the pics or at first when wearing it. but now on closer look I notice that on the back plate when looking in to dating it that it might not be as it should.

    So wondering on others thoughts on this have include a back plate pic and dial pic not a movement shot as it is working very well I did not want to take the back off just for a pic why mess if I don't have to, so for this we will just take it from what we see on the outside

    hmmm was more on the watch then my nonexistent photo skills

    no why I was asking was that the bottom line on the case back that says gpb thought that meant it should be a gold plated case then ?

    to be fair the first was not the greatest only throw it in as an after thought tried to get the back plate as clear as I could but only half did but readable ?

    A white background for an orange sweep second hand seems more likely than than orange background, at least if visibility were a concern. Might the dial have been (partially) redone?
